I am aware that there is more than a single set of tools that mgiht
possibly be used to format Xml-docbook into html, pdf, and ascii, so I
want to ask the advice of those FreeBSD'ers who have actually begun
using docbook to format their own personal documents. You see, I have a
very lnog-term history of usage of Groff-'s MM macros for my document
formatting tasks, but I want to move to a more modern set of tools.
That is specifically (today) docbook-4.[latest], and tomorrow is
I really would want, if possible, to avoid using any dsssl-based
toolset. If there is a toolset that uses only libxml* based tools, that
would really be the best, but I would be willing to consider adding in
Once I get it working under Java, you see, I am convinced I coudl (using
a smallish postscript helper file) craft a toolset that no longer needs
Java at all, but I need a working toolset before I can make that jump.
Help me, please!
Again, if you aren;'t using docbook yoursekf, pass this up, please, I
only want to hear from those using the tools themselves, on the FreeBSD
